Celski, who won two bronze medals in Vancouver; the first-ever Trials of women's ski jumping, which makes its Olympic debut in Sochi; and two matchups between the Canadian and U.S. women's hockey teams, who have met three times for Olympic gold.

Trials coverage begins on Friday, November 15 at 3:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN with curling from Fargo, N.D., and concludes on Sunday, January 5 at 4 p.m. ET on NBC with short track from the Utah Olympic Oval in Kearns, Utah.
